Journal of The Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education

The Journal of the 25th Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education (CISSE) marks a quarter century of contribution of leaders in cybersecurity education from the education, government, and industry. This paper embodies contributions of authors from around the world, as we collaborate to enhance the cyber resilience of society. Papers this year were aligned around the Conference theme Challenges in Teaching Cybersecurity: Ethics, Legal Issues, Adversarial Behavior, Risk Management, Pedagogy, and Governance. Papers were presented at the conference clustered into interest areas of K12, Education Theory, Interactive Engagement, Cyber Warfare, Cyber Industry Analysis & Theory, Teaching Tools for Cybersecurity, and Cybersecurity Laboratory Innovation. In addition several papers analyzing specific cybersecurity courses included subjects like Cyber Warfare, Security Operations Centers, and Applied Cryptography.

The CISSE is a key gathering place for many of the leaders of the National Centers for Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity. The annual meeting has been continuous for 25 years whether in-person or through virtual conference facilities, and offers an opportunity for all educators to see the advances in the field of cybersecurity education. In addition, CISSE offers a particular welcome to young cybersecurity educators as a way of connecting with leaders in the field and connecting with those in topics of interest. In addition, CISSE offers a workshop for those interested in expanding the impact of their research on the field.

This year 22 Papers were accepted from a pool of 29 submissions that came across the US and internationally from countries as far away as Oman. The acceptance rate was 78% based on the journal’s policy of publishing all papers of significant value to the Colloquium members and the field. The high acceptance rate reflects the quality of this year's submissions based on the peer review recommendations. All accepted papers passed a peer review process and review by the Editorial Board.

Upon reflection, the qualities of papers submitted this year exemplify the continued innovations occurring in cybersecurity education. We see significant advances in the body of knowledge, particularly in teaching emerging topics in cybersecurity education like quantum computing, visualization of data, and cyber warfare. We also see significant advancement in core cybersecurity disciplines such as forensics, malware analysis, and penetration testing. This year, there is an emerging interest in our authors to also publish on digital instructional methods that provide advances in online learning, immersive learning environments, and engaging experiences.

This is the first year we are registering the journal and the individual papers through Crossref with individual DOI numbers. This will allow for availability of our content to a broad range of commercial indexing services, thus increasing the potential impact of our author’s work. The journal papers will continue to be indexed on Google Scholar, with the color hard copy available through Amazon. Copyright of the content remains in the hands of the authors, with free distribution encouraged. Usage requests in publication should be made directly to the authors.

The Editorial Board would like to thank all those who participated, in particular the journal’s Program Committee members who participated in the peer review process. This allowed us to maintain the high standards of the journal and significantly eased the Editorial Board’s review process. Especially we thank Erik Fretheim for organizing the conference again this year. And thank you to the Board of Directors and Officers of the Colloquium, who provided essential leadership and guidance under Chairman & Co-founder William “Vic” Maconachy.
